    LOS ANGELES – Gale Storm, whose wholesome appearance and perky personality made her one of early television's biggest stars on "My Little Margie" and "The Gale Storm Show," has died at age 87.


    Storm, who had been in failing health in recent years, died Saturday at a convalescent hospital, said her son, Peter Bonnell.


    Before landing the starring role in "My Little Margie" in 1952, Storm starred in numerous B movies opposite such stars as Roy Rogers, Eddie Albert and Jackie Cooper. After her last TV series, "The Gale Storm Show," ended in 1960 she went on to a successful singing career while continuing to make occasional TV appearances.

    Oh my goodness! I haven't heard that name in eons! I have to admit,I thought she would have been older,and passed a while ago. I was just an itty bitty one when she was popular.

    RIP Gale Storm.

    I remember Gale Storm very well, she's about 10yrs. older than me.If you like old movies she starred with Diana Lynn in the 40's in "Our Hearts Were Young And Gay",there was a sequel also.I liked her very much.She had a problem with alcohol in the late 40's, came back as was stated but never made it big in the movies again.Her sense of humor was fantastic..

    She also starred in Oh! Susanna a tv show that debut in 1956. ZaSu Pitts co-starred.
    My Little Margie ran for three years from 1952.
    But, then, you all knew this.
